China said Tuesday that "US military, political and counter-terrorism efforts in Afghanistan are a complete failure" and that "attempts to bring democracy don't work," AFP reported.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin was speaking on the two-year anniversary of the Taliban's return to power in Afghanistan.
He said: "Two years ago, the world witnessed the moment when the US hastily withdrew their troops from Afghanistan. The lesson from this change of situation in Afghanistan is very profound, and it is still worthwhile for the world to reflect on it today. It shows that the US military, political and counter-terrorism efforts in Afghanistan are a complete failure, and that once again military intervention, political interference, and attempts to bring democracy don't work. On the contrary, it only brings turbulence and disaster."
